Wow, the picture of the two older Tikis really looks great; I'm more and more sold on your idea about leaving the finish alone. Although of the handles you experimented with, you have to admit that the finished one looks prettier and might appeal to more people more than the unfinished one in a sort of a commercial sense, the patina on the older Tikis is beautiful and it would be a travesty if someone was to come along and refinish them! Another point in your favor is that once that surface is altered, there's no turning back; I don't have several decades to wait for it to age again. I'm really glad that I asked this question and I really appreciate your input and ideas! Thanks again, Chuck
